Open House at Olathe Fire Station #1 - August 28, 2022

We opened the doors, pulled out the apparatus, set up a grill and provided hamburgers and hot dogs to guests that came for a tour of the station, listen to music, meet our responders, and learn more about our district and its needs.  It was a great day for all!  The weather was perfect and the water fight was a great grand finale to the days events!  Thank you Olathe!  We are happy to be here for you!

Olathe National Night Out

August 8, 2019

OFPD paired with the Town of Olathe to coordinate an Olathe National Night Out, a night for the community to meet and greet with  responders for the community. The Olathe PD, Montrose County Sheriff and K-9 Unit and SWAT all participated in the event located at the town park. Horton Street was closed for the ½ block west of the station so everyone could roam freely between the event and the fire station for our Open House. We fed over 200 people a hamburger/hot dog BBQ style dinner and there were games in the park, a DJ for music, K9 unit demonstrations and a spectacular water fight!  OPD and OFPD did a dance off – our own Lt. Hubert Kimberlin won! Overall, it was a very enjoyable evening for all!
